2.Dropzone

3.Ripcord

QAD is the way to go in my opinion. Full containment drop away. Ripcord would be next on my list but I like the QAD better.

I love my ripcord. QAD is very nice too but the only thing that scares me from it was my cousin put one on his bow and it wouldnt drop down every time, and when it did the rest wouldnt fall fast enough so he was having fletch contact so he switched to the ripcord and didnt have any problems. Maybe it was just a bad rest because I havent heard of anyone else with that problem.

#1. Off the shelf. wink

#2. "Cusion/Plunger" style.

I have the trophy taker full containment. I have never had problems with it.

I have 2 trophy takers a limbdriver and a trophy ridge dropzone on my bows the only one I will not recommend is the drop zone their are a few design flaws where the arrow might not sit in the same place and play in the bar that raises the arrow

I planned on getting the trophy taker, but I went with the ripcord. I love it. When I got a new bow last year, I got another ripcord. Its been very reliable.

Ripcord here too. Not one issue with mine in three years of use on my Switchback XT.

I am in favor of the QAD. I really like the full containment for hunting situations. Have had no issues.

I've had a Vital Bowgear Kaz-away on my last two bows and I've really been happy with that rest.

Thanks gang. Will probably check out Ripcord and Quad. As for the W Biscuit, they work good but raise h*** on your fletchings.

The whisker bisquit was a good rest to learn on. Now it is the Ripcord all the way!

I started on a whisker but now moved onto a Trophy Ridge Dropaway. I wanted a drop away but wanted it enclosed but I do like the Trophy Ridge products

    • cool find!  sure looks like a Swainson's.  
    • Great info.   Thanks Steve!   Jim
    • Came across this hawk on Earth Day at the edge of town. I've been told dark morph Red-tail, dark morph Swainson's and dark morph Broa- winged. Anyway, it's a dark morph some kind of hawk.
    • Yes it was.  I really needed one more layer today.  Lots of jakes and hens seen by us this morning.  Still looking for the toms.  Hope you had more luck.
    • There are a lot of apps available for that. Search your app store for "phone tracking" or something similar. Many give you the ability to share your positions so you both can see each other live. You might even have an app already on your phone. For example, I have Lookout Security installed on my phone and it includes the ability to find the location of my phone from another phone or PC. 
    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
